Decided to finally wrestle off the badly rusted manifold on my 1370. Not fun. Decided to make a song out of it.
12 rusted nuts,
11 studs unbroken,
10 lb maul whacks,
9 fingers uninjured,
8 chickens watching,
7 filters to replace, 6 exhaust ports,
5 cylinders firing,
4 turbo studs, 3 spreader bolts,
2 frustrated brothers,
and 1 removed manifold!!!
Oh, and 0 collateral damage fires from 2 torches!
Now the misfiring cylinder is solved but just recently, so threw that in for good measure :-). Filters getting replaced today. Dropping manifold off at a machine shop to be planed and have a couple old cracks on the ears welded up and drilled back out.
I cannot believe how difficult that was to remove!
